Artist Bio

For the past 15 years Matt McClune has been taking visual clues from the environments of specific locations in France and elsewhere, and distilling them into his often quiet, meditative paintings, flooded with light. At times bordering on the monochrome, more often active and gestural, the many-layered washes of clear polyurethane gel, containing pure, finely-dispersed pigments, are applied to various metallic supports with specially-made spatulas of varying widths.
Ideally seen in changing natural light, McClune’s paintings often shift in mood and color, as the light of day penetrates into the layers. In 2015 he began using a range of pigments which also shift in tonality depending on the placement of the viewer, accentuating the split- personality often contained within.
